WASHINGTON – The Wilson Center welcomes the White House’s appointment of Drew Maloney, American Investment Council President and CEO to its Board of Trustees.

"As the living memorial to Woodrow Wilson, we are honored to have presidential appointments to our board,” said Jane Harman, Director, President, and CEO of the Wilson Center. “Assistant Secretary Maloney brings experience that will help us move from excellence to eminence."

“I am honored to join the Board at the Wilson Center, one of the most respected policy forums dedicated to tackling global issues,” said Maloney.  “I look forward to working with the Center to advance the nation’s policy debates with independent research and open dialogue.” 

Maloney is President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the American Investment Council (AIC).  The AIC is an advocacy and resource organization that represents the private equity industry and promotes the industry’s successful record of investing in every state across our country. 

“I’m pleased to have Drew join us and look forward to working with him,” said Wilson Center Board of Trustees Chair, Frederic W. Malek.

Prior to joining AIC, Maloney served as the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Legislative Affairs.  Unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate, he served as the principal liaison between Treasury and Congress.  In this role, he worked on a range of major issues including the passage of the first major tax reform effort in more than three decades, financial services reform, foreign investment reforms, trade policy, and sanctions. Maloney received Treasury’s Distinguished Service Award for his achievements and leadership.

Prior to Maloney’s appointment to the Treasury Department, he served as a corporate officer and Vice President of Government and External Affairs for Hess Corporation, a global independent energy company. Maloney led international, federal, and state government affairs, communications, corporate social responsibility and sustainability.
